Meet Sylvie

I grew up in a small German village surrounded by color and design in my family’s home. My father, a full time artist, has been my model of entrepreneurship since the day I was born. I loved looking over his shoulder as he was painting. My own creative journey lead me from drawing, crocheting and knitting to ultimately enrolling in a three year sewing program at a trade school in Bremen, Germany when I was in my early twenties.

I came to America in the 90s, and landed on Martha’s Vineyard. I found work as an au pair and soaked up a new culture, one that was positive and inspiring. Sewing for a few local designers eventually lead me to making the jump into starting my own business in 1997. Since then, I met and married my husband and we share a daughter, our dog Bentley and two cats. We make our home in West Tisbury on Martha’s Vineyard.

I love what I do. My passion for Mid Century textiles is paralleled only by my enthusiasm to inspire you to discover this material and surround yourself with the designs and colors that make vintage fabrics so special.

I always welcome inquiries about the fabric or my work and I hope I will be able to infuse joy into your life through my unique creations.
